Ensure that a seat is suitable for your car by checking with the manufacturer, a qualified salesperson in stores or on online services such as Britax's Fit Finder (click here to view).

Straps should be padded and easy to adjust, while deep side cushions offer added protection in a side impact.

Never buy a second-hand seat, as it may have been in a crash and any damage may not be visible.
